Secret gem of 77?
It's probably not the best of the tour but hot damn this show is good.
The terrapin>playin>samson>playin first set closer is absolutely face melting.
The whole second set crackles with energy and experimentation!
Eyes>dancin>wharf rat>franklin's>sugar mag? Get outta here! Once I heard this show I forgot about 03/18 and it's first ever scarlet>fire almost entirely!
I def find myself drawn back to this one time and time again, and am surprised it's not talked about more.
Wish I was there!

Absolutely spectacular for '77; also a definite improvement from the night before recordingwise and lyrically, with the boyz hitting just about everything just right.
First sets for '77 could be as deadly as second ones, and here's a prototype example - they lay everything down with total precision and then comes this wild suite following Estimated and anchored by a truly dark, strange, ethereal Playin'. The energy propels that Samson right through, and into the reprise. Often Playin' is unmentioned in so many show reviews due to out sheer familiarity with it, but, seriously folks, soak this thing up.
Set 2 is a no-holds-barred suite from start to finish - Eyes is bright and delightful, and check out that the beginning of that supercharged Sugar Magnolia!!! *Y-O-W*!
The winter '77 Winterland shows are to cherish, but this one hold its own against any other show of this year. It's a masterpiece.
